F ass/StG 57 (SIG SG 510) are an acquired taste, I presume. The fact that some people like that old, cumbersome, ugly, roller-delayed blowback beast is a glimmer of hope for people like me (coming with similar characteristics). #moreabattleshipthanabattlerifle

I really don’t like the F ass/StG 57 (too heavy to be a battle rifle, too light to be a light machine gun, and that buffer recoil spring in the stock makes me cringe, like on an M16A1) and still prefer its predecessor (Mq/K 31) or its French counterpart (MAS 49/56), but in that shooting attire, I’m finding it quite sexy.

From Peabody to FASS/StG57 : 90 years of Swiss Army rifles at #museemilitairevaudois. On the 3rd pic, the Mq/K31 is a sniping variant, Mq31/42.

The 5th pic show how war ammos were stocked at home by the Citizen Soldier.

The last one depicts the performance of GP11, a cartridge still used by Swiss Army in machine guns.
